A Decending Zig Zag Quilt { Tutorial } : :

Nordika Zig Zag binding, dense quilting

Today I'm sharing my newest quilt tutorial! I'm still seeing such wonderful feedback, lots of pins, and comments on my recent Herringbone Quilt Tutorial, I owe you all a HUGE thanks!! Tutorials are a lot of work, and receiving such an amazing response always makes the effort worth it! Seeing that first Herringbone QAYG finish, made by one of you, was the best! Thank you!

You might remember seeing this quilt shared here back in July, along with a special Nordika fabric Giveaway. Well, I'm excited to finally share that I've created a free pattern/tutorial to share with all of you and with Janome fans, as a Janome Artisan!

Nordika Zig Zag CLOSE UP
This project tutorial is for a simply pieced, descending zig zag quilt pattern made by separating darker value fabrics from lighter ones to reveal a fantastic design!

These quilt blocks sew up quick to an 8.5" unfinished square, a wonderful size for making both small and large quilts!

Happy sewing!!

  8. I like how you mixed up the colors, instead of using all one color.
    Keeps the look but breaks it up a bit, nicely designed.

  9. Thank you for being so generous with your tutorials. I've made several of your aprons as gifts, a pillow, and now I just started my first quilt using the Herringbone quilt pattern you shared a couple weeks ago. I love checking in each day to see what you are up to! You are such a great inspiration to me and so many others. Keep up the great work!
